When I started @DailyPlanetDC in February 2014 I had no idea it would grow into what it is today. I’ve met countless influential creators and contributors and I am forever grateful.

In recognition of the phenomenal talent dailyplanetdc.com has showcased this year, we’ll be awarding our talented contributors and collaborators their own digital prize. We can’t thank them enough for their notable efforts to keep the Planet rotating, but I hope this small token of appreciation expresses our gratitude.

On Dec. 3, 2020 I published an article containing a series of polls. The polls were my top pics for this years best articles, poems and other forms of noteworthy works. I asked the public to vote, and they did. Here are the results.
